Former FBI director James Comey, a lifelong Republican, also stated that Americans should cast their votes for Democrats in November. However, Comey’s reason somewhat differed from Wilson’s. Instead of alleging that Democrats are more economically conservative than Republicans, Comey opined that Republicans are at odds with “this country’s values.”
As the midterm elections rapidly approach, many aspects of the political climate have also seen notable impacts. For instance, analysts have urged both Republicans and Democrats to toe certain lines if they wish to win in November.
The GOP has received recommendations to focus on the economy and steer clear of divisive issues, such as special counsel Robert Mueller and the Russia investigation. Likewise, Democrats are advised to avoid campaigning on policies that will alienate moderate and independent voters. Some examples of those policies are Medicare for All and socialized employment.
Concerns about potential Russian meddling in the midterms have also come forth.
